    I live in St-Niklaas with the largest market square in Belgium. This market is infinitely bigger and gives thereby to very competif prices the best of Italy. Not weekly but DAILY except Sunday!! We leave with two empty suitcases. Clothes in the hanbagage. We come fully loaded back. Take a luggage hand weegschaaltje with it! Each year we do this market!

    This is the biggest open air market in Europe. And as such you can walk for hours on end looking at different stalls and choosing what's going to be next on your menu. If that's not interesting enough...  more »

    We were on a Thursday on the market. The grave disappointment! Only the fruit and vegetables part was appealing and also the fresh produce in the market halls. The market halls half of the stalls were closed; as well as in the fish Hall, which was half-empty and smelled very strictly. The new market hall was empty up to win some few shops! The other market stalls with shoes, clothes, etc have only junk and all the same. Disappointing, but very good for the wallet, we have bought nothing!

  • One of the best opened markets in Europe without a doubt. Apart from vein the biggest one in the continent, the prizes here are impressive. There are great offers everywhere: fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, clothes, and so many more things. It is one of the most unique places of Italy, there is a great mix of cultures, languages and cultures. The only thing you should take care of: watch out with the pocketers.
  • The best place to visit. I thing, it's one of the most important market in europe.
  • One of the best food markets we've been to in Italy. The amount of food on display was mind boggling, while still maintaining excellent quality. The vendors are very nice as well; we asked one for a single orange and he gave it to us for free :)
  • Fresh produce everywhere from vegetables and fruits to meat. There are so many shops and so many varieties to pick up. There are no restaurants here, so don't go here mistaking it for a anything but a veg and meat market
  • It's an amazing place for shopping , almost anything can be found here from fresh vegetables and fruits to clothes and electronics with a very good price. It's a really huge market and on Saturday there is also the Balloon market.
